    Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla in a small bowl with an electric mixer for 10 minutes or until thick and creamy. Fold in sifted flour, then chocolate mixture; stand for 10 minutes.

    Spoon mixture into a large resealable plastic bag or disposable piping bag fitted with a 1cm (½-inch) plain tube. Pipe 4cm (1½-inch) rounds, about 5cm (2 inches) apart, onto prepared trays. Bake for 8 minutes or until puffed and beginning to crack. Cool on trays.

    Meanwhile, to make chocolate frosting; combine chocolate and butter in a medium heatproof bowl over a medium saucepan of simmering water. Stir until smooth. Whisk in sifted icing sugar; cool to room temperature. Beat with a wooden spoon until thick and spreadable.
